Trivia

In the 1934 episode "Punch Drunks", Moe orders burnt toast and a rotten egg. Curly then asks why, so Moe says he has a tape worm, and that's good enough for it. 5 years later in the 1939 episode "Three Sappy People", that gag is repeated except that Curly orders burnt toast and a rotten egg. Moe then asks why, so Curly says he has a tape worm, and that's good enough for it. See more »

I could watch this one over and over and over!!!!!!
28 June 2000 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I was very excited when I was able to add this gem to my movie collection.

I remember seeing this about 3-4 years ago and I remembered most of it but not all of it. Curly stole the show!!!!! Classic Stooges to the hilt!!!!!!!

If you thought that upper class were prim and proper, then you MUST see this Stooges short.

Of course there is the classic pie fight at the end and this is where the fun really is. Curly is having pies thrown at him by Moe and he (Curly) has to protect himself. So he stands behind the countess. Moe throws the first pie and Curly ducks behind the countess and she gets the pie in the face. Curly comes from behind the countess for a couple of seconds as Moe is preparing to throw the next pie and Curly gives his famous "Nyuk Nyuk". He ducks behind the countess again as Moe hits the countess with the second pie. Curly then comes out from behind her and says to Moe "Ya missed me, Nyah" (He sticks out his tongue like a 6 or 7 year old).

All Curly's facial expressions and noises that emanate from him throughout the movie are hilarious!!!

Now these men are supposed to be professional "psychiatrists". What a way to help a patient out her her dilemma!!!! They themselves need the help.

This film is so nutty it is really funny!!

For a fun filled evening, I suggest you rent this one, for sure!!!
